For agonists, the terms of definitions used include: EC 50 - is the molar concentration of an agonist which produces 50% of the maximum possible response for that agonist. ) IC 50 - where an agonist causes an inhibitory response, the IC 50 is the molar concentration which produces 50% of its maximum possible inhibition. For these two measures a lower value indicates higher potency. PD 2 - is the negative log of the molar EC 50 or IC 5o . For example an EC 50 of 10-6 is equivalent to a PD 2 of 6.

How does the human body react to the drug? e. what are the effects of the drug on main organ systems? e. are there any efficacy end points available to help assess dose-response? e. is there a clear description of the major kinetic parameters such as plasma concentration time curves (AUG), plasma half life, volume of distribution, clearance, degree of protein binding? • Bioavailability of the formulation to be tested, and the effect of food • Metabolism: Are the major routes of metabolism known?
